Phantoms unveil international team

Phantoms eSports have announced the creation of a new CS:GO division with a couple of familiar faces from the scene.

Phantoms were a household name in the Portuguese 1.6 scene as they supported various teams who challenged k1ck for trophies, featuring players like Tiago "dzt" Gonçalves, João "ehz" Monteiro and Rui "SHOUW" Reis.

After a period of inactivity, Phantoms are now fully functional once again, and they have made their intentions clear by putting together a new team with ex-k1ck AWPer Mário "Fyx" Rodrigues at the helm of the project.

Phantoms also boast two Danish players who have already made a name for themselves in the CS:GO scene: Magnus "JOKERN" Barthel, formerly of fnatic, and Casper "ruggah" Due, who has played for Anexis and ServerForge in the past.

k1ck's fyx

Fyx returns in new project

The last two members are Slovenian ace Dejan "NTG" Herga, who represented his country's national team on multiple occasions in 1.6, and Teric "Bibby" Ingram, who played at a top level in the North American 1.6 scene. Ingram has recently moved to Germany, so playing with the rest of the team will not be much of a problem.

"Today I am really happy to say I am playing under the PHANTOMS tag," Herga said. "For me it's like a dream come true to be playing with amazing players in a professional organisation.

"Since I am the most new and unknown player in the team im very eager to prove myself. I feel with this organisation helping us and our current lineup we can really do some damage in the Europe scene."

The new Phantoms team will make their first appearance at DreamHack Valencia, which will take place from July 18th to 21st at Feria Valencia. The team's lineup is the following:

Portugal Mário "Fyx" Rodrigues
Denmark Magnus "JOKERN" Barthel
Denmark Casper "ruggah" Due
Slovenia Dejan "NTG" Herga
United States Teric "Bibby" Ingram

day I am really happy to say I am playing under the PHANTOMS tag. For me it's like a dream come true to be playing with amazing players in a professional organisation. Since I am the most new and unknown player in the team im very eager to prove myself. I feel with this organisation helping us and our current lineup we can really do some damage in the Europe scene. I wanna thank PHANTOMS for everything and well see you guys at Dreamhack Valencia" - See more at:

2013-06-18 22:20
youre coming back to curse after DH LAN and pwn online?
2013-06-18 22:46
curse? what?
2013-06-18 23:22
Fanboy? .. Im certainly not a "Fanboy" of anyone, But it just gets so boring to watch 14 y.o, act so cool on the Internet ... Seriously.
2013-06-19 05:09
i'm 14 y.o and i'm not acting cool #swag #yolo #420 #thuglifeblazeit
2013-06-19 21:32
Im proud of you<3
2013-06-20 05:20
why dont you come on lan for once? until then shut the fuck up :)
2013-06-18 23:45
not your business noob;D
2013-06-19 02:04
at least i go to lans "wokey" - sure i was bad in 1.6 - - this is my last event in CS:GO and if you think thats the worst player in denmark then ur pretty dumb ;)
2013-06-18 23:44
n1!! only good rating vs shit german onlinenoobs like you.. your brain doesn't develop when you change the game to csgo :D >REPS KOPS
2013-06-19 02:10
Did YOU just call someone online? Lol. Yea mouz are onliners ! When you win a lan let me know. Until then, stfu:)
2013-06-19 08:54
2013-06-19 16:49
gz you won a mixlan, im proud of you! sure n!faculty are onliners, doesnt change the fact they were high seeded at cph games, and won EPS with the same lineup. I think they were shit, no more to add to that though. i had 2 bad maps throughout the tournament, rest was pretty decent, at least for an igl in my opinion - but hey, maybe you did better!
2013-06-19 18:07
Ye thx

you're happy for a internet result?ok. see you soon
2013-06-18 20:55
how i love when people defend a noob team saying "OH IT WAZ INTERNET @ LAN ZEY ARE PRAFESONELS CUZ THEY HAVE k1CK PLAYAH..." People play better at home then at lans, but the result would be the same even at a lan event.
2013-06-18 20:57
if you say...who am I to doubt a random? GG :) See you guys in Valencia
2013-06-18 21:01
Well you're the only random here. Not from DeNova, if you'd pay for the trip to Valencia sure, they can own Phantoms asses there, otherwise they wont be there.
2013-06-18 21:04
as i said... the conversation is over :)
2013-06-18 21:06
beginners do, pros not :)
2013-06-18 21:06
For the pros its the same Online and Lan. But yeah its easier to play at lans when you're used to it, nothing to mess things up for you, no friend yelling outside the window to go drink with him. :D
2013-06-18 21:09
lol pros couldnt give a shit about online play
2013-06-18 21:19
yeah because they dont play cs:go when there are no lan tournaments...

2013-06-18 20:57

"played at a top level in the North American 1.6 scene.".. Nobody even knows who this "bibby" guy aka "gonella" is, outside the fact that he has tried to recruit semi-elite to top players from all over Europe with his lies about having played on a top level in US and having contacts beyond what he actually has. Is JOKERN really playing with this clown? I don't see him in these guys` official teams. I thought he had higher standards, I kind of thought the same about ruggah as well. Oh well.
2013-06-18 21:22
so true :))
2013-06-18 21:34
2013-06-18 21:39
or maybe gonella pay JOKERN/Fyx just to get some attention? xD
2013-06-18 21:41
Thats probably the reason why they play with him :D

2013-06-20 11:40
2013-06-18 21:35
Bibby/gonella still pay people to play with him or add them on steamfriends? what a bad cunt.

2013-06-18 22:48
Agree with this man!
2013-06-19 00:25
so u agree that u need a better team? :(
2013-06-19 01:27

2013-06-19 01:33
LOL how much did he pay you to say that, or did humb just pay up as usual... common man have some dignity atleast :)(

2013-06-19 17:03
i have no idea if any clans exist or a community of some kind, all i'm saying that there are players who play csgo all the time. eg. about an hour ago a slovenian mix with ntg, dn1, gugi, nino, and someone else, tied a mix with skreaM (asus.rog)

2013-06-19 03:57
I care alot about Ruggah and JOKERN as personal friends, but i still dont understand this, i recon if they get a free trip, who wouldn't .. but still .. i would never play in a team with Gonella, he's the second biggest liar i have ever met. Man, if you all just knew all the stories, it's amazing how much he lied his way through, no respect for him at all.. Therfore i wish the Rest Goodluck! :)
2013-06-19 05:14
Who's the first ? :p

As i say every time ... too many flags = no success ... they will disband soon
2013-06-19 10:27
That applies to you too :D
2013-06-19 10:59

2013-06-19 11:14
I'm talking about how many times you change your flag on hltv.
2013-06-19 11:41

GL BiBBy! Amazing CSGO player, superfast reflexes and insane aim. He might be the next f0rest! He was also top player on quake, cs1.6 & css fatal1ty once said: "bibby has more skill than anyone ive ever met, truly insane boy" p.s. thanks for the pocket money mate ;)

gl guys,especially fyx,most be receiving money because he refused to play for Rasta so GL!
2013-06-19 18:08
that bibby guy which i assume is micah-iwnl- use to pay people to roster ride and do all kinds of things, then he'll pretend and list like he's played for those teams on his profiles lol. He's a very weird guy, he's not even average at CS either... infact I don't think he's even had more than 20 hours in CS 1.6... He even pretended some hot girl was his girlfriend in some ESEA post before lol.
